Don’t miss the US hit comedy of the summer, THE BIG SICK produced by Judd Apatow and starring Silicon Valley star Kumail Nanjiani.
When Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail (Nanjiani) connects with grad student Emily (Zoe Kazan) after one of his standup sets, what they thought would be just a one-night stand blossoms into the real thing.
